Halo Dev Replies to Battle Royale Query: "The Only BR We're Interested in Is the Battle Rifle"

343 Industries has no interest in making a Battle Royale mode for Halo.
343's Jeff Easterling and James Bachici were asked on the 343 Mixer social stream whether there would be a Battle Royale mode in Halo Infinite, and Easterling replied, "I'll tell you right now, the only BR we're really interested in is Battle Rifle."

Me too. they just casted a STFU spell on stupid fanboys predicting this game to be a MP only game. ;)

Yeah also a part of me also thinks Halo infinite might be a next gen launch game. They've said this is the most ambitious Halo game ever made.

I agree.

Thank Jeebus...
Battle Royale is empty, and rather boring in My opinion, especially without squads or teams.

Shots with the battle rifle followed up with a buttstroke and then a tea bag!

I like this answer also. I prefer assault rifle close to mid range to the face till the controller rumbles out their hands though...

I am glad 343i are not jumping on the battle royale train as Halo (and Gears of War) are basically the only remaining console arena shooters.

It would be kind of redundant anyway. Halo is so customizable you can make a BR mode on your own. Hell it already exists in Halo 5's custom games browser.

Forge and custom games are big and underrated part of Halo, and I'm sure Halo Infinite will have so many more tools that creating battle royale would be easy as shit.

Yeah that's true, I've played giant free for all modes in Halo forge.

Hopefully it stays that way. And I am still waiting on the MasterChief collection to get fixed.

Patience, Grasshopper...

Only a little while longer.
